Given Vivienne's baleful behaviour, her affair with Russell, her general
impossibility, it is an unsurprising surprise that one of Eliot's letters
confesses unequivocally to adultery. He is pre-empting a charge of excessive
puritanism: "I remember also minor pleasures of drunkenness and adultery…"
Also, see the review by Adam Kirsch:
